cutt downe, expressely, as this deponent hath heard and verily beleeveth to make a
Rasse for the preservation of the lives of the said Tresaure, Pylott, and
Companie then aboard the said shipp the dope./

To the 12th hee saith, That from the time that the said man of warr the Venture
departed from Yarmouth upon the Voiage in Controversie till the said shipp dope was cast
away as aforesaid, shee was not in any Port or harbor except Yarmouth roade
aforesaid, nor any of her Companie ashoare, (this deponent excepted,) as is predeposed
neither did they meet woth any shipp at Sea in all that time, whereby they had
any notice or intelligence of the peace aforesaid. The premisses hee knoweth
for the reasons predeposed, And further cannot depose.

To the 13. and 14th articles hee saith, That the allate John Tresaure of this
deponents observation was and is an able seaman, and, as this deponent hath credibly

past, and for and as such the said Tresaure was and is generally reputed.
And beleeveth, the said Tresaure, Pylott and Companie did thenir uttmost
endeavor to preserve the said shipp the dope both from and after her running
on ground, the said man of warr, wherein this deponent then was, being also
at the same time runn aground as aforesaid, about the distance of one
hundred yards from the dope, as hee conceriveth, And further cannot depose

time of her said seizure was a dutch built shipp belonging to Amsterdam

and hearing, And saith, That in Case the said Tresaure and Companie
had not taken and manned the said shipp, after her owne Companie (except
the said Master) had so deserted her, shee and her lading must inevitably have
perished at sea by reason of a very tempetuous wind and weather arising
shortly after the said shipps seizure, Which hee well knoweth for the
reasons aforesaid, And further cannot depose./

To the Crosse Interrogatories./ [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first Interrogatorie hee saith and deposeth, That hee this rendent was one of the
Companie of the shipp Venture interrate in the Voiage in question, but had
no Office in the same, neither doeth hee in this Cause doe or endeavour any
thing saving the declaration of the trueth, so farr as his knowledge extends
